Working With Your Doctor

Your doctor needs to:

  • Clearly evaluate your work restrictions — and communicate them promptly to the employer, worker and claim manager.
  • Respond to requests to approve or disapprove a particular job offer, based on the worker’s medical restrictions. Need help? Call the Provider Hotline at 1‑800‑848‑0811.
  • Continue to certify time-loss compensation, at least once every 30 days, as long as the patient is unable to work.
  • Make sure only a medical doctor, advanced registered nurse practitioner or physician assistant completes and signs the Report of Accident and Activity Prescription forms.
  • Read L&I's Attending Doctor's Return-to-Work Desk Reference (F200‑002‑000).
